Testing:

I am very interested and excited to see how the new Sapphire HD4850 using the new GPU from ATI will compare when it is tested using a few different video benchmarks to measure the performance that the software is able to get when using the HD4850. I will be putting the Sapphire HD4850 up against a few different video cards that are out on the market, including the PowerColor HD4850. All of the settings will be set at stock settings for all of the cards, I will be overclocking the HD4850 to the maximum level that I will be able to do so that I can compare the difference in performance due to the overclocking process and see how beneficial it is to overclock all components in your system.

Overclocking:

Overclocked settings:

  • Sapphire HD4850: Core - 670MHz   Memory - 1100MHz

When it cames to overclocking the Sapphire HD4850, I used a piece of software called AMD GPU Clock Tool. During the overclocking process, the temperatures did not go up more than a few degrees, however after those few degrees, the final temperature was between 82 to 86 degrees.
